Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a restored vintage Crossley oil fuelled stationary engine. It was manufactured by the Crossley Brothers of Manchester, England. It is an early four stroke diesel type engine, which followed on from the steam era. Over the years more than 100 000 Crossley oil and gas engines have been built and it is testament to their quality that many of these are still used today. 

This particular engine was originally used from 1923 to 1938 in the Sydney Power House to generate electricity for Sydney. It was later used in a butter factory in Coffs Harbour from 1938 to 1949 and then at a Narromine property from 1949 to 1964 to pump water for crop irrigation. The family who owned it were the Crawfords.

I dont know the history of this old engine and although it was no doubt lovingly explained to us the history we quickly forgot. However the kids loved it! It was big, loud, impressive and unique. After a thousand offers of county town nature gardens and lookouts it was wonderful to see this different and interesting working relic. Kids too were very impressed
